Pope Madness 2013

People will make a tournament bracket out of anything, and the process of selecting the next Pope is just too tempting to resist -especially as it will be held in March. This bracket is divided into  four regions, including the tri-state regional, which contains four men not actually considered "papabili" (two are deceased). The rounds have wonderful names, the best being the Sweet Sistine. Each candidate comes with Vegas odds, so get your office pools ready! Link -via Metafilter

I really like where you're going with this - it's mortal combat then? Maybe something along the lines of Death Race 2000. Various pope-mobiles could be retrofitted with weapons. A course could be laid out around the Vatican and all of it televised. The winner is whoever manages to accrue the most points in bumping off their competitors.

It would be a big boost to the Catholic Church if they were to decide the next Pope through trial by combat. I hear that Rome has an old colosseum that may be suitable with a little renovation. Whenever I bring this up, the response is always positive!
